Data Partner pilot call

There is currently no call for data partners running. Subscribe to our newsletter to stay up to date about upcoming calls.


More detailed information about our previous open call for data partners can be found in the Data Partner Pilot Call Description document.

The Data Partner Pilot call document refers to two more documents:

  • a template of the code of conduct for the reviewers which can be found here
  • a sub-grant agreement for data partners which can be found here

A list of frequently asked questions can be found here, but do not hesitate to contact us using the contact form or by emailing us at should you have any other questions.

The European Health Data and Evidence Network (EHDEN) invites Data partners in Europe to apply for funding to map their health data to the OMOP common data model (CDM). The ambitions of the EHDEN project are high. We aim to standardise more than 100 million patient records across Europe from different geographic areas and different data sources. Mapping of such data to the OMOP CDM will facilitate their use for a variety of purposes, enhancing and accelerating research and healthcare decision-making for global benefit.

Data Partner pilot call - Timeline and approach

TheData Partner pilot call was the 1st call in a series of calls. The call description document was open for public review between July 15th and August 15th to allow the EHDEN project to optimize procedures and clarify the pilot call text if deemed necessary. The application phase of the Data Partner pilot was been open between September 1st 9:00 am until Sept 15th 17:00 pm.

Why should you apply?

Below we list key reasons why we believe a Data Partner may wish to apply to EHDEN. For more details related to each of these key values, we refer to the call description document.

    • Easier scientific collaboration through a thriving community
    • Boost opportunities to participate in international studies for larger impact
    • Improved interoperability adds value to your data
    • Financial support for uptake, extension and validation of mappings
    • Increased visibility for your capacity
    • Enhanced capability for study design and analysis thanks to a host of open source tools
    • Increased reproducibility and transparency of analyses
    • Faster performing studies for accelerated research
    • Federated approach allows to retain full control of the data
    • Support your own decision-making processes by easily characterising and visualising your data
    • Platform for training of young researchers and new staff
    • Framework to demonstrate reliability and utility of observational data analyses
    • Improve your readiness for a new research environment and evidence generation framework

In addition, we highly recommend watching the EHDEN webinars which include conversations with researchers and data custodians that are already part of this exciting journey (Webinars). The presentations given at the OHDSI Symposia might also offer a valuable source of information (OHDSI Europe and OHDSI) if you want to become more familiar with the vibrant community.
